Fair Chance in Housing Act 

On June 18th, 2021, Governor Phil Murphy signed the Fair Chance in Housing Act, barring landlords in New Jersey from asking about criminal history on housing applications. Landlords will only be able to ask about criminal records on applications if the prospective tenants are a registered sex offender or were convicted of making meth in federally-assisted housing. Otherwise, landlords cannot look into criminal history until after making a conditional offer.
